    Spc. Michael J. Zedick, 277th Quartermaster Company, digs deep during the pushup event for the Army Physical Fitness Test. The APFT was the first of 12 challenges faced by competitors in the 316th Expeditionary Sustainment Command 2012 Best Warrior competition. Held from March 29-April 1, at Fort Dix, N.J., the competition tested Zedick and 11 other soldiers in day and night land navigation, weapons qualification, a 10-mile road march, and a range of Army Warrior Tasks. Competitors were also required to take a written exam, submit an essay and appear before a board of sergeants major. "[This event] is very important to me," said Zedick. "... I joined the Army for a challenge, and this is one of the ultimate challenges ... so it's kind of dear to my heart to do my best and to see how I set up to the standards." This year, the “Soldier of the Year” victory went to Spc. Christopher P. Fitt, 439th Quartermaster Company. Staff Sgt. John W. Schillereff, 38th Regional Support Group, won “Best Warrior” title for the non-commissioned officers. The two winners advance to the 377th Theater Sustainment Command Best Warrior competition.
